We decided to skip putting up the tree and to keep the decorations to a minimum, this year. I didn't pull any of my Christmas/winter decorations out of storage. Instead, I made some new paper decorations. I made the snowflake ballerinas from the free template and instructions given on www.krokotak.com. The pine trees were cut free-hand. The little house/cabin in the wood was made without following any specific instructions; I just formed it as I went.
On this Christmas Eve, I wish everyone a joyful, peaceful celebration.
